At Manor Park we believe that maths is essential to everyday life and an important skill to acquire for future employment and prosperity.


At Manor Park we want all our pupils to:

  • become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics.
  • reason mathematically.
  • solve problems.

The expectation is that the majority of pupils will move through the programmes of study at broadly the same pace. However, decisions about when to progress are always based on the security of pupils’ understanding and their readiness to progress to the next stage. Pupils who grasp concepts rapidly are challenged through rich and sophisticated problems before any acceleration through new content. Those who are not sufficiently fluent with earlier material spend time consolidating their understanding before moving on.

At Manor Park we use the Whiterose scheme as a basis for our planning. The Whiterose scheme is used from F2 to Year 2.

In F1 and F2 the children are taught maths in two distinct areas:

  • Number
  • Shape, Space and Measure.

In Years 1 and 2 the children are taught the following topics:

  • Number – Number and Place Value
  • Number – Addition and Subtraction
  • Number – Multiplication and Division
  • Number - Fractions
  • Measurement
  • Geometry – Shapes
  • Geometry – Position and Direction

We teach maths in a fun, creative and interactive way and the children use the outdoor environment, wherever possible, to investigate and problem solve.
